Default right-of-way on I-5 CRC

I've been commuting across the I-5 Columbia River Crossing, and wondering if we can all agree on the right of way.

Some people say that on the southbound side (the side I and most people ride on, both directions) that perhaps the southbound bikes should have the right. Yes, they are going "with traffic" but we are all separated from the I-5 traffic anyways.

I liken two bikes meeting to two climbers or hikers, where the rule is generally to yield to the person who is going uphill, has their momentum and so forth, so they don't have to break their stride. (If you haven't done this route, yes the bridge is a bit of a hill, peaking in the middle!)

What say you?
